Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Versatile and easy to make, felt provides an ideal base for surface embellishment. This inspirational guide explores the possibilities, from creating felt from scratch to selecting unusual dye combinations and producing three-dimensional pieces. Using the sample projects that illustrate the main techniques, both beginning and advanced fiber artists will soon be experimenting with color, line, shape, pattern, and texture. Special sections on Japanese Shibori (knotting and dyeing the surface) and Nuno (combining felt with other materials to create rich and interesting fabric surfaces) make this a must-have for all fiber artists.
 

Synopsis:

With sample projects that illustrate the main techniques, Felt to Stitch will address the main elements of design in felt: colour - blending commercially dyed fibres; dyeing processes for wool fibres; applying colour as surface design; line and shape - methods for creating clear outlines in felt; pre-felts for use on inlay, applique and mosaic; texture - combining felt and fabric - Nuno felt, embellishing with other fibres; Form/three-dimensional felt: seamless hollow forms; and, other techniques - multi-layered felts, low relief, and webs/grids.
